As we look forward to an exciting new school year, PTO would like to take this opportunity to tell you about what we do for Southern Hills.  This is YOUR parent/teacher organization and we welcome all to join. There is a place for everyone, you can choose a level of participation that fits your needs and schedule.

Our monthly meetings are the 3rd Thursday of every month (unless otherwise noted), the first being August 28th at 2pm.  We always encourage parents to attend monthly meetings to keep informed about PTO, school happenings and meet new parents. Please keep in mind that this is not a forum to discuss individual student issues. Please contact our Principal, Chavonne Gloster, with any specific concerns.  Our purpose is to support students and staff, enrich learning opportunities and enhance educational experiences. Updates and minutes are always posted in the SHMS online newsletter. 


Among the many events PTO supports and organizes, through donations, include:

*Locker assignment day

*Photo / Locker day

*Back to school breakfast/lunch for teachers

*Back to school picnic

*Parent/teacher conference dinners

*Mini-grants for teachers to purchase additional classroom items

*Technology upgrades/additions, such as smart boards and chrome books, etc

*Teacher Appreciation Week

*Holiday Cookie Exchange before the holidays

*PEN (Parent Engagement Network) events

*Field trips for all grades

*End of the year parties for students


You are welcome to become a PTO board member and share the responsibility of deciding how funds are allocated. We encourage having a large parent attendance.

Our ONLY fundraiser for the entire school year is the Cougar Challenge. Your donation is 100% tax deductible, 501c3 tax exempt, and all funds go directly to SHMS. Funds support all of the events listed above and many more. Last year’s goal was $45,000 and $51,779.40 was raised! Our SH community is amazing! The goal this year is $50,000.
